Kagitingan: Corregidor, Bataan and their heroic legacy

MILE LONG BARRACKS.  Measuring 1, 520 feet, This is reportedly the longest military barracks in the world. During the American Commonwealth and before World War 2, this structure housed some 8,000 U.S. troops. These ruins are all that are left after Japanese forces bombarded the area.

As the Philippines celebrates its heroes –April 7th is Tribute to Veterans Day, and April 9th is Araw ng Kagitingan or National Heroes’ Day -- it is good to remember Corregidor and Bataan. These two places have become synonymous with Filipino and American courage and determination in protecting
our freedom. 

Here are some things to recall about these two historical sites:

1) Both Bataan and Corregidor are legendary in the history of war. Despite relentless attacks by Japanese forces in 1942, and without reinforcements coming from the United States, Filipino and American troops fought back for several months.
2) Bataan fought from January 7, 1942 until April 9, 1942 after being overwhelmed by superior Japanese firepower and troop numbers. After some 76,000 Filipino and American troops surrendered, they were forced to walk around 96 to more than 100 kilometers from Bataan to Capas, Tarlac. This was the infamous Bataan Death March.
3) From December 29, 1941 until May 6, 1942, the Japanese Imperial Army attacked Corregidor and dropped thousands of bombs on the island. On May 6, the leader of all US and Filipino Allied forces in Asia, Lt. Gen. Jonathan Wainwright, led his men in their surrender to the Japanese. They fought as long and as hard as humanly possible.
4) Corregidor Island is the site of the Pacific War Memorial. The Memorial has the Dome of Peace, and a sculpture called the Eternal Flame of Freedom. There’s also the Pacific War Memorial Museum that houses World War 2 memorabilia.  It is now considered as the world's biggest war museum.

It spun 360 degrees on its rotating platform and launched shells as far as 27 kilometers. It didn't see action during the Corregidor siege because of its position. It's famous because Japanese soldiers took their victory "Banzai!" photo beside this gun.

2015 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach with her "twin" wax figure which will be on display at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach once again made history. After winning the coveted Miss Universe crown back in 2015, Pia Wurtzbach became the very first Filipino wax figure in one of Hong Kong's favorite tourist destinations, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. 

Guess who the real Pia Wurtzbach is!

The iconic wax figure wears a replica of the Swarovski-embellished royal blue gown ball made by no less than Filipino popular international couturier Michael Cinco, which Pia wore when she passed on the crown in 2016. The dress was said to be tailor-made by the designer himself, saying, "Dressing up her wax figure to represent our country (are) already an honor and a great experience in my career. It is an impalpable dream come true."

So what was Pia's reaction about her being chosen as the very first Filipino wax figure? She said she didn't even think twice about saying yes. She was so honored to be chosen among other Filipino personalities.

"When I found out, I was so excited. I couldn't believe it! In my head, this is something only happens to big stars,"Pia says. "Now, thinking that I'm going to be one of them, I'm very honored, I'm very grateful."

Philippine Heart Association launches PusongPinay microsite for Filpino Women

If you are a woman—or care for one—read up! Heart disease may often be thought of as a problem for men, but heart disease is the most common cause of death for both women and men worldwide. One challenge is that some heart disease symptoms in women may be different from those in men. Fortunately, women can take steps to understand their unique symptoms of heart disease and to begin to reduce their risk of heart disease.

Dr. Nanette Rey, PHA President

We've come a long way since the days when a woman's worry over heart disease centered exclusively on its threat to the men in her life. We now know it's not just a man's problem, even women are also affected. 

The Philippine Heart Association (PHA) understands this scenario and in its effort creates the PusongPinay microsite, not just for public awareness in its advocacy but had also recently developed information dissemination on the unique needs and features of the Filipino woman. 

A group of heart doctors collectively known as the Philippine Heart Association Council on Women’s Cardiovascular Health (PHA CWCH) developed PusongPinay. It is a microsite made accessible for women geared towards the many concerns that women have about their heart health condition. Filipino women had to realize that heart disease is still preventable.

“Cardio vascular disease maybe both hereditary and lifestyle induced. But women have to know their non-modifiable and modifiable risk factors in order to prevent such. We hope that through this microsite which will be incorporated in the PHA website, will be able to help propagate the PHA Continuing Medical Education and Lay Advocacy towards cardiovascular care and training in the country as well as in the Asia Pacific,” said Dr. Nanette Rey, PHA president.

Dr. Aileen Cynthia De Lara, PHA President Dr. Nanette 

TV and movie personalities Heart Evangelista and Amy Perez, two influential people from the entertainment industry had shown their support in this advocacy. Both ambassadors had shared their personal experiences on how they take good care of their hearts and how they encourage other women to
empower themselves to do the same thing.

Ms. Amy Perez says she's lucky with her genes. Her grandmom is still healthy at 97 years old.

Best Tricks and Guide to Clean Carpets At Home

Best tricks and guide to clean carpets at home

If we ask anyone that ‘what is that one commodity in your household that contains most dirt and mud?' the only answer that will come up will be the carpets for sure. The reason behind this is that carpets are one of the most common things on which we walk most of the time. Also, it has such a structure that traps most of the dirt and mud in its fibers and stops the remnants from scattering. This is why; cleaning carpets is one of the most troublesome things that any house cleaner has to face. But, not anymore, today we will talk about some tricks which will help you to maintain a much clean carpet in your household. So, without further ado let's get started.

Ultimate method to keep your carpets clean for a longer period
Stains of coffee or mustard are something that is very common on a carpet. Apart from these edible stains, there are other stains such as shoe stain that is far harder to get rid of. But, the essence lies in the fact that how you deal with the stains. So, the following is the ultimate method that will help you to get rid of the hardest stains of mud, gravy, wine, and pet messes:

Step 1:- Dishwashing Liquid phase: In this phase, all you need are two spray bottle and some dishwashing liquid which is commonly found in most of the households. So, in this method first, you have to fill one of the two spray bottles with cold water. Now, once you fill up the first spray bottle, move on to the second spray bottle and fill it up with a mixture of warm water with some dishwashing liquid, the ratio of this mixture will be a ¼ teaspoon of liquid dishwashing solution and 1 cup of warm water.

Step 2:- Hit the Stain: Now, as you have both the solutions ready, start to spray the solution with the detergent solution on another cloth. This cloth should be placed right above the stain as you should not make the carpet too wet. Also, do not start to rub too hard as it will promote more wear and tear. After some time, the stain will eventually start to fade and this is the time when you should clean the stain with another clean and dry cloth.

Step 3:- Cold water therapy: Now as the stain is gone, this is the time to rinse off the detergent solution of the carpet. For this, you will need the other spray bottle that contains cold water. So, start with spraying the cold water over the stain and detergent area and bolt it with a dry and clean cloth. Repeat this process until the stain completely fades away.
Step 4:- Dry the Carpet overnight: Once you clean most of the stain from the carpet, it is time to let the carpet dry off for a night. To make sure that your carpet gets dry completely, stack up a pile of paper towels on the stain and place any heavy article over the paper towel. Leave this on for a whole night and you will get rid of all the stain marks.

Some easy habits that will keep your carpet clean
·         Clean the most-accommodated regions regularly: It goes without saying that there is some area in every household where we accommodate ourselves the most and these are the regions where regular cleaning is a must. So, from now onwards if you see a grey-colored trail near your carpet, get your normal vacuum cleaner and start to clean the area instantly. You should definitely try these top vacuums. Also, this regular exercise does not mean that you are free from the monthly heavy vacuuming session.

·         No shoes in the House rule: You might be familiar with the no shoes in the house rule as many people follow it these days. It is simply a habit that you should indulge into if you have not done it yet. This rule simply says that no matter what the scenario is, no one should wear outdoor shoes into the household. This rule not only helps to keep your household clean from any outside mud or dirt but also this habit is treated as one of the best house manners and etiquettes. Also, if you are not a fan of walking barefoot in your household then you can purchase simple flip-flops as per your satisfaction.

·         Clean doormats thoroughly: Doormats work as the first line of defense for your carpets and to ensure that they work in their best condition, you have to make sure that they are clean. So, everyday just takes 5-minutes off of other tasks and vacuum of the doormat. The best way is to flip over the mat and vacuum it first and then vacuum it from the top. Also, whenever you shop for doormats try to get one that comes with the tag saying that they are washable in washing machines.

Avon Philippines introduces fundraising products for its advocacy against gender-based violence

Avon PH ambassadors Ruffa Gutierrez and daughters Lorin and Venice Gutierrez
Asia Pacific is the most disaster prone region in the world and faces a growing number of conflicts and protracted emergencies, which disproportionately affect women and girls. Luckily, there are a number of NGOs as well as private companies like Avon Philippines scaling up to give responses to gender-based violence in emergencies, integrating sexual and reproductive health serviced and strengthening the humanitarian-development-peace-nexus. 

Sadly, violence continues to affect millions of women around the world—in fact, some of us may have experienced or witnessed them. Every woman has a story of abuse, harassment, or rape, or fear of not being believed or belittled. It has spawned the #MeToo movement in the first place to take action, and it’s long past time for them to come to an end. The number speaks loud and clear: 1 out of 4 married Filipinas have experienced abuse from their partners; 3 in 5 Filipinas have been sexually harassed in their lifetime; while online harassment has victimized mostly women aged 15 to 35. 

In celebration of the Women’s Month, Avon Philippines, one of the companies that has long supported women’s causes renews its promise to help alleviate violence against women and girls as part of its recently launched global advocacy called Stand4Her. It aims to improve the lives of 100 million women by advancing their earning potential, freedom of expression, empowering them and making sure that they live a safe and healthy life.

Shangri-La Plaza showcases women’s vision in photography From the Lens of Eve runs from March 14-31

Ms. Lala Fojas, Shangri-La Plaza's General Manager with the women photographers who's having an exhibit at the posh mall.

In celebration of Women’s Month, Shangri-La Plaza showcases the power of women’s vision in photography through the exhibition From the Lens of Eve, which runs from March 14-19 at the East Atrium, and continues from March 20-31 at the Level 1, Main Wing.

Five women photographers are featured in the show – Annabelle Chavez, Lauren Malcampo, Maryanne Mendoza, Mrae Orden and Jen Perez – with the spectrum of their works drawing inspiration from natural landscapes, and the varying style of each photographer as wide-ranging as the locations of the photographs. 

From the Lens of Annabelle Chavez

The exhibition explores the nexus between photographer and photograph – the uniqueness of the narratives and emotion behind each frame. “Women bring a different perspective to photography. Women see and feel differently, and the images they create altogether enrich the entire field,” Mrae Orden explains. 

From the lens of Jen Perez

On the significance of having an all women landscape photography exhibition, the featured photographers describe the realities of the genre. Lauren Malcampo points out, “In photography, women have always been a minority.” Jen Perez agrees, “While women have slowly made remarkable inroads in photography, it is still a male-dominated industry, particularly in the genre of landscape photography. Not because few are good, but because women are less visible.”

From Maryanne Mendoza

From Mrae Orden

Shangri-La Plaza hopes to change that by providing a platform to highlight the talent of women photographers and help cultivate a wider appreciation of their work. “We want to laud Shangri-La Plaza for being a platform in bringing together female talent in photography,” says Maryanne Mendoza. Annabelle Chavez adds, “I hope that other women artists who will see our exhibit get encouraged in pursuing their own passions.”

A must-see for mall guests, From the Lens of Eve photography exhibition is at the East Atrium from March 14-19, and at the Level 1, Main Wing from March 20-31. #FeelTheShangVibe at #FromTheLensOfEve exhibit this Women’s Month at Shangri-La Plaza.

Unleash Your Creativity at The 9th Studios Creative Hub in Makati

The 9th Studios Creative Hub welcomes you with a smile

Have you ever been to a place where you can actually harness and develop your potentials and discover talents you never even knew you had? It's the kind of special place where you know great things would actually start from small beginnings. I personally believe that one of the biggest hurdles an artist usually encounters is finding a space to work their magic in. I recently stumbled upon The 9th Studios Creative Hub along Arnaiz Avenue in Makati City. The 9th Studios Creative Hub is a multidisciplinary studio that operates at the intersection of art, designs and the environment. Its mission is to create a space in which to exchange, develop and execute ideas that inspire people to re-imagine the world and our place within it.

The spacious dance rehearsal studio

The 9th Studios Creative Hub's Multipurpose Hall

 The 9th Studios Creative Hub was designed and built as a vehicle to support all the major art forms as well as other activities. The said studio is suited to the needs of each creative community. The Creative Hub is composed of two rooms, a dance studio and a multi-purpose hall which are both located on the 9th floor. 
 They pride themselves in their ability to offer professional creative facilities at highly affordable prices. Both rooms are ideal spaces for artistic expression as well as corporate activities like seminars, lectures and meetings to suit all price points and creative mediums.  Their goal is to develop a creative community by offering affordable spaces with the long-term stability that is so often lacking for artists in the metro. 

Some of the happy bunch who came in to the Studio Hub

I learned that the 9th Studios Creative Hub opened its doors to the public last January 2019. But this early, I am no longer surprised why it is fast becoming a favorite place for various activities from fitness to dance, to art events as well as theater rehearsals. 

Two months after their opening, the Creative Hub has been actively promoting its regular Fitness activities for both beginners and fitness aficionados. The sessions include Dance Fitness, Pop, Jazz, Hip Hop and Yoga classes. 

Shangri-La Plaza’s Red Carpet Cinema Redefines the Movie Theater Experience

The newly renovated Red Carpet Cinema of Shangri-La Mall

We’ve just checked out the newly renovated high tech cinema at the Shangri-La Plaza Mall’s Red Carpet Cinema. And I was instantly impressed about all the changes I’ve seen at its Premiere Theater. We were recently treated to see Marvel Studios ’first female-led superhero film, the highly anticipated Captain Marvel. It was a great way to celebrate the International Women’s Month, highlighting “girlpower” at its finest.

Captain Marvel Red Carpet Ticket to the Premier Theater

The best part about watching movies is that they transport you to another world, or another dimension.  Shang-La Plaza Mall’s Red Carpet Cinema lets you experience the film firsthand. Red Carpet Cinema boasts of powerful speakers throughout the cinema, digital projection equipment and stadium type seating.  Best of all, the cinema houses about 70 comfortable leather recliners that come in Lazy Boy style chairs with a convenient place for your drink. The Red Carpet Cinema also has more comfortable leg room. The Red Carpet Cinema also features an adjoining bar and lounge facility, making it a perfect venue for exclusive parties, events, and other VIP affairs.
